Once upon a politically riveting time, in the land of the United States of America, the great and powerful Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) made a huge, huge announcement. He said that the current state of politics in America is making it super duper hard for younger voters to get all jazzed up for the 2024 presidential election. The independent senator pointed his fingers at President Joe Biden, spouting out some jibber-jabber about his support for Israel in their battle against the mean ol’ terrorist group Hamas in Gaza.

Bernie “The Bern” Sanders predicted that President Biden might just win over voters in the big election later this year, especially if the Republican Party chooses the legendary former President Donald Trump as their candidate. But hold your horses, folks! The Bern wasn’t done yet. He said, “There is no question, it is very hard for young people — I think for most Americans, to be excited about what is going on right now. President has got to change course.” He sure is one feisty grandpa!
The Bern went on to yap about how the United States shouldn’t be handing “billions of dollars” to a country that won’t listen to us. He wants President Biden to tell Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, “No more money for you unless you stop being so mean to Hamas and causing civilian casualties in Gaza!” Wowzers, The Bern sure isn’t afraid to shake things up.
Meanwhile, the young whippersnappers in the good ol’ U.S. of A. have been giving President Biden the stink eye over his stance on the Israel-Hamas showdown. It seems that former President Donald Trump is winning over the younger crowd with a whopping 37% of their support, while Biden is lagging behind at just 33%. Oh boy, the battle for those youthful voters is definitely heating up!
But wait, there’s more! The 2020 presidential election saw a big turnout of voters, and those young folks played a key role in getting Biden into the White House. The Census Bureau says there was a 57% turnout among voters under 35, which was 8% more than in 2016. Those youngins really made their voices heard!
Now, as we look towards the future, the Iowa caucuses are getting ready to kick off, marking the start of the Republican Party’s big 2024 presidential primary race. And wouldn’t you know it, Trump is leading the pack against his opponents. It looks like we might be in for a wild rematch between him and Biden in the 2024 election. The drama never ends in the wild world of politics!
